Sling TV Launches Installation Pilot Scheme


Sling TV has launched a new professional installation pilot program for cable cutters in select US markets, making it easier than ever to receive local over-the-air for free via an HD antenna.

Residents in Albuquerque, Detroit and Salt Lake City can now choose from three Sling TV “Total Live Streaming Solution” bundles, complete with a professionally installed HD antenna and streaming equipment, including the award-winning AirTV Anywhere.

“Making the switch from cable to live streaming has never been more enticing, and SLING TV is simplifying the process while making it accessible to more Americans,” said Michael Schwimmer, group president, SLING TV. “The new professional installation pilot program and Total Live Streaming Solution bundles allow customers to enjoy the best cable has to offer at the best price, including free locals, without the setup hassle.”

In partnership with OnTech Smart Services, all Total Live Streaming Solution bundles are available for delivery and include:

-One (1) HD outdoor antenna
-One (1) AirTV Anywhere
-Three months of SLING TV’s live TV streaming service
-Equipment installation and setup by a professionally licensed technician within the three launch markets.

Select bundles also include up to two AirTV Mini streaming devices, and are available for purchase by calling SLING TV.

Eligible customers can sign up for a Total Live Streaming Solution bundle through SLING TV’s new flexible payment option. Flexible payment options allow consumers to avoid a large up-front payment and instead pay $49, plus their first monthly installment for the hardware and their first month of SLING TV programming (starting at $30 per month), at the time of installation. Consumers will then split the remainder of their hardware balance over eleven (11) monthly installments.

All bundles are also available for one-time purchase, starting at $289.99 – an immediate $160 savings off of the retail value of $449.99.

With the best possible signal and picture quality, customers in Detroit, Albuquerque and Salt Lake City can receive an average of 98 free local channels.

Residents outside these markets are eligible to order bundles for direct shipment and self-installation, and can speak to a SLING TV agent over the phone to determine which bundle best suits their entertainment needs or visit to place an order.
